I will do a full recap of Gannon's second Birthday another day. But I wanted to post about the birthday cake we had for Gannon. One of the most important items for the party to us is the cake. When our other child was five I had ordered him a train cake and it tasted great BUT the decoration on it was far from what we asked for. Needless to say he never has let me live it down and I feel like a mom fail. So with us being new to Houston I had no idea where to go to order Gannon's cake. I took to the internet to read reviews and to figure our what was near us. I was told one other place but I kept eye this one Place named Take the Cake. I sent a facebook message to the Owner Anabel. We spoke through the internet a few times. I sent her a few different pictures of what I thought I might like. We ended up going with an 2 tier eight inch cake. It was chocolate on both layers with vanilla cream cheese in the middle. The icing was butter cream icing dyed green. The character and shapes were made out of fondant. Anabel did tell me that they were just starting to work with fondant so they were not experienced in a lot of things yet but learning. Take the cake did NOT disappoint. Anabel told me to take the cake out of the fridge the morning of the party. I did not do it since we were leaving for Galveston for the day and having cake later this evening. I didn't want to take a chance on my dogs getting in it. I did take it out of the fridge as soon as we got home. It was so yummy. Everyone done in and loved it!
I do have to admit that I was a little nervous for the mixed reviews but something had told me to go for it. What I also loved when I went to pick up the cake one of the workers there told me that Gannon's cake was her favorite and other customers had been requesting an Elmo cake. The worker told me that she had showed other customers who loved it and wanted it too. Then the worker said Anabel wanted to speak with me before we left. She was right out and was so so nice! She wanted to make sure that I liked it and it turned out the way I wanted it. Take the Cake has the best customer service and is so nice. If you are in need of a cake please choose them.
